      Great Culture

      Pros

      Delta sets itself apart with its culture - laser sharp focus on its people. No corporation is perfect, but after my 12+ years just ended, I can honestly say they strive to do what is right for their employees, even if it isn't always the best business decision. That attitude has created a culture of cooperation and family.

      Cons

      Delta pay, before the pandemic forced temporary pay cuts, was industry-leading as far as I could see...however, in the leadership ranks, each level you climb ultimately means they get a bigger and bigger portion of your life. At a certain point, it became difficult to manage a healthy work-life balance.

      Pros

      Lots of flexibility and growth fast. Great co-workers. High pay rates and competitive in the industry. After 3 years, more flexibility and better schedule.

      Cons

      Poor leadership support. Work life balance before 2 years is a bit of a struggle due to lower seniority and may have to work weekends and holidays.

      Amazing work culture that puts their employees and customers first. Great benefits and pay, with amazing work/life balance. Highly recommend this company to anyone.
